Blueprint for Intelligent Edge and Implications for Industrial Internet of Things
Published: April 10, 2019 Content info: 11 Pages
Description

With the impending launch of 5G mobile and fixed access services in the 2019-2021 time frame, the strategic role of edge computing will expand to industrial internet of things (IoT) and consumer IoT. The IT industry has developed tools to help manage edge computing, but in order for scale to be achieved, communication service providers (CSPs) will need to build frameworks that will enable ICT vendors to collaborate with vertical systems integrators and application/content developers. "We believe that 5G will be the catalysis for edge computing to go mainstream by 2022-2023, and leading enterprises in each major industry will explore and seek to achieve proof of concept in the next three years," says Hugh Ujhazy, VP of telecom and IoT, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Cloud-native technologies, such as container orchestration and fixed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) with traffic steering and load balancing, and wireless SD-Wan with VPN bonding and cellular bonding will become part of the runtime platform for the edge," he adds.
